Global Integrity 8

Corruption Connections
Moral wholeness for a whole world

EXPOSED Campaign
Why can't Grace go to school?

Integrity is moral wholeness—living consistently in moral wholeness. Its opposite is corruption, the distortion, perversion, and deterioration of moral goodness, resulting in the exploitation of people. Global integrity is moral wholeness at all levels in our world—from the individual to the institutional to the international. Global integrity is requisite for “building the future we want—being the people we need.” It is not easy, it is not always black and white, and it can be risky. These entries explore the many facets of integrity with a view towards the global efforts to promote sustainable development and wellbeing.

"The EXPOSED Campaign, a coalition of Christian groups and churches from over 150 nations seeking to shine a light on corruption, is now officially concluded! Over the past two years, EXPOSED campaigned on corruption issues in all aspects of public life. Over 250,000 people took part in actions across the world to expose unethical practice. We'd like to thank everyone who got involved and especially to the nearly 150,000 people who signed our Global Call against Corruption which was presented to the leaders of the world's major economies, the G20 at it's November 2014 meeting in Brisbane, which marked the conclusion of the EXPOSED campaign. And although the campaign itself may have ended, the work to 'shine a light' on corruption continues ... in the lives and witness of the many thousands across the world who caught the vision of EXPOSED!"
